Contra Costa County Employees’ Retirement Association made a $50 million commitment to Trident IX, according to the pension’s October retirement board meeting document.

The pension previously committed $40 million to the fund’s predecessor, Trident VIII, which held a final close at $7 billion in July 2019, exceeding its $5.75 billion target.
